Collision detection is not an easy topic to cover well [smile]

Technically speaking it falls into the realms of physics rather than graphics, so don't be too concerned if you find papers/tutorials covering it that don't use DirectX. You can however make good use of the D3DX functions to help simplify your code.

This website has a few good articles, having had a quick search for you:

Practical Collision Detection
Simple Bounding-Sphere Collision Detection
Collision Detection Algorithm
Collision Detection

Read those, and if you've got any more precise questions you might wanna ask the people in the Maths & Physics forum [smile]
